(FixThisNation.com) – Frank Siragusa, a man from New York has filed a class-action lawsuit against fast-food chain Taco Bell claiming that they are overstating the amount of each ingredient used in several different menu items.
The lawsuit filed on Monday came around one year after the man who had bought a Mexican Pizza from Taco Bell in September 2022 had stated that he noticed that the beef and bean filling used was around half the advertised amount. He then looked at the photos other customers had posted to verify that this was the amount they had all received.
The lawsuit also cites a story published in the U.S. Sun in September 2022 in which it is noted that the Mexican Pizza does not fit the advertised description. The man proceeds to accuse the fast food chain of incorrectly describing a number of items on their menu, such as the Crunchwrap Supreme.
To prove his claims of false advertisements he has also included photos of the actual dishes compared to the advertisements used by Taco Bell. Beef and several other ingredients are not provided in the amounts advertised according to Siragusa who has comparison photos for the Crunchwrap Supreme, Mexican Pizza, and their vegan equivalents.
The lawsuit proceeds to allege that the false advertising from Taco Bell is financially damaging to consumers who are receiving products that are of less value than those they had originally been promised through the false advertisements about larger food portions. It is further claimed that this practice is also stirring customers to purchase from their company instead of competitors, despite the food quality and value being lower than the one advertised.
